  • Facebook's Developments Shape Social Media For Us To 'Like' It Even More [View article]
    Well yes, we're due for another crash, but why would you want to buy, when SPs are about to plummet?

  • Samsung CIO Wages War Against Apple, IBM And BlackBerry In Enterprise Mobility [View article]
    Yes, G, I'm rather hoping that their recent disclosures will drive down their SP, as this is one company I'd like to own.

    It's a "she"? Oh, nothing to worry about then.

    But seriously, in countries where companies are obliged to pay severance money (even to non-executives, shock! horror!) they avoid it if they can, by telling people the company's in trouble, and then wait for natural attrition. This means the best are usually first to go, and management don't care to raise salaries for those they'd rather keep (it sends mixed messages and muddies the waters, doncha know?).

    I beg to differ, b and author, about there being no head winds; the fact that we are in one of history's longest bull run, is a threat to all stocks, hence all the recent to and fro-ing! It'll be interesting to see how well FB fares, when the market goes south (as it surely will, and soon!). Will it cling on with the blue chips, or drop like a stone like most other dodgy stocks (as I expect BBRY to do, if only because of perceptions...)? I'd put it at fifty fifty, though there's little or nothing to go on, as no such company has been in this position before; interesting times ahead!

  • Bank of America takes over J.P. Morgan oil refinery deal [View news story]
    Never mind, ff, I thought your comment was funny. At least BAC is staying out of the commodities market; when big financial dealers get involved, it usually leads to deals and manipulations far more sleazy than anything BAC has done...

    Oops, that was meant to be a "why", but never mind, as I'm sure I do it myself in some circumstances, so "we" works, too!

    It often seems that way, GE; we are people so determined to forget the lessons of history? There's lot of willful denial going on...

  • BlackBerry's Significant Margin Of Safety: Part 2 [View article]
    It'll likely suffer more than most, m, being generally perceived as a risky bet. Be prepared to buy in cheap, later...

  • BlackBerry's Significant Margin Of Safety: Part 2 [View article]
    I see you do your home work, ZK! At least Samsung has plenty of other irons in the fire (and it's good to see them being so open; they make BBRY seem positively opaque!) but if Apple ever loses it's charmed existence, it could be in big trouble, being far more dependent on smart phone sales...

    Well said ZK, and many fail to realise that, other than for senior executives who might get the boot if the SP plummets, it doesn't have any direct relevance to the companies operations.

    As for BBRY having a "floor", I rather think not, as the whole market seems to be teetering on a knife edge, and BBRY is not generally perceived as even being close to a blue chip, and will be ditched by most current holders if everything does goes pear shape. I'll look on the bright side; if it drops low enough, I'll be able to buy...

  • Facebook Modifies Real Name Policy [View article]
    Well, it will certainly result in a lot of trolling, by any definition, but with so many sites offering this service, already, I don't suppose FB had much choice about it...

  • Nokia suspending production at Indian phone plant [View news story]
    True, S, except it's not so much the government as the bureaucracy they have to work through; when they are millions strong, and know their cushy jobs may be under threat, they can be very difficult to move!

  • BNP looks for way around dollar clearing ban [View news story]
    Thanks NYC, I'll check it out, though there's no guarantee it's the same here in France. By coincidence I'm with CA (central region; it's run more like a franchise, here).

    Looks like my prescience worked for once? You're spot on ZK, for most stocks, not just for BBRY, as the whole market is badly overblown, given how dodgy the reported economic "growth" is. I wont promise you this is the beginning of the end, but history shows it can't be far off! The sad thing is, most of those actively trading get so engrossed, they can't see the forrest for the trees; it's those who keep an eye on the big picture who will prosper...

    Are you kidding? The whole market is about to head south, with some falling faster than others, but I'd be very surprised to see many strong climbers in the coming months. Don't depend on the holiday season, which has become limper each year, recently!
